QUARRY Bank cubs were among thousands of youngsters who took over Warwick Castle at a recent centenary event.

Adventure awaited cubs from the 1st Quarry Bank group as they headed to the castle to take part in ‘The Wildest Birthday Ever’ activities specially put on to help them celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouts.

During their visit, the cubs experienced more than 1,100 years of history and were excited to see the world’s largest working catapult launch a flaming fireball, while scaling to the top of the tallest tower, before partying with the countess at her lavish Royal Weekend party.

Navene Taylor, Quarry Bank Cub Scout, said: “I was really excited about climbing the towers and I’ve loved getting lost in the maze and hanging around with my friends.”

The cubs also journeyed through time on a whirlwind adventure quest through Warwick Castle’s rich and vibrant past, with shows and attractions, gruesome history and birds of prey, all set in 64 acres of grounds and gardens.

Sam Taylor, Cub Scout leader, said: “It’s a huge deal being here, Warwick Castle is a wonderful place to come and celebrate with lots of cubs.

“It’s a big year for us and we want to wish Cub Scouting a very Happy Birthday and we hope to have lots more adventures in the future.”
